Most underrated cafe in town.

Not a lot of people go here since its kind of hidden, which is so sad since the food is honestly amazing and some of the best cafe food in town.

Our hosts at our B&B recommended the Citronen to us as we were not disappointed. We had their pastas which we enjoyed very much. We did learn that they were not open on Sundays & they take only Danish credit cards.

We use Cafe Citronen when we are in Svendborg, it is a cosy cafe with great coffee and home made cakes. It is a cosy place to hang out in Svendborg. You will find great chairs, todays papers and receive a very friendly service.

The stjerneskud was delicious and delicate. The amazing amount of different toppings, textures and flavors brought this entire dish together. It was a bit pricey but worth it if you want a traditional danish dish. We also had the potatoe soup which was nice and creamy with also a hearty flavor. Definitely give it a go!

We popped in here for a quick bite to eat after arriving in Svendborg. We both ordered a Sandwich (Club and Vegetarian), which we didn't realise would be "open" as they all are in Denmark. Regardless they were very big and considering the price, were good value. A really nice setting, with really nice, English speaking staff. Well worth trying... More

We were planning on eating here as it looked nice and inviting, but after being met by a rude and uninviting waitress, we went to Boersen instead.

This is a "cafe-style" restaurant, and we have eaten there several times. The food is quite good, and...the service was probably a couple of notches better than other, similar restaurants up the street. Pricing is/was fairly expensive, but....so are all restaurants in Denmark.

I think their burgers are some of the best i have tried especially the potatoes and the dressing they come with. And thats why im giving a 4 star. But if you want a burger eat from Jetter Dinner, not far from it. But Citonen is great 2.
